How exciting is it for The Barn at Wombat Flat to present the first headline act ever to grace our stage! We couldn’t believe they came straight from Bluesfest to our little venue, as yet unchristened, to just blow our audience away! You will seriously not want to delay in getting tickets for this one! We can’t wait to have them back. You will be amazed and delighted! AND….here’s the scoop….they will be appearing at The Barn at Wombat Flat in FULL BAND MODE!
Critically acclaimed Australian act, Hussy Hicks are a tour de force featuring Leesa Gentz’ powerhouse soul vocals and Julz Parker’s revered guitar skills. Prolific and accomplished musicians, Hussy Hicks have honed their sonic dexterity over the past 12 years with five studio albums, multiple industry awards and more than 1,000 live shows under their belts, from Australia’s biggest blues, roots and folk festivals to 15 plus international tours, which now sell out across Europe.
Known for their emotive lyricism, energetic live shows and fiery, frenetic instrumentation, it’s no surprise Hussy Hicks have staying power. From Gold Coast Artist of the Year and Album of the Year wins to Queensland Music Award and Golden Guitar nominations, their critical accolades extend even further, with guitarist Parker being touted by Australian legend, Phil Emmanuel as ‘Australia’s top female guitar player’ and voted fifth in Bluesfest’s Guitar Hero fan poll, among Santana and BB King.
Julz Parker and Leesa Gentz possess a special connection and an innate understanding of each other musically. Their unique sound spans many genres from boisterous blues and roots, to contemporary folk, alt country and power ballads.
